Orthopaedic subspeciality is a present day need for developing country like Bangladesh to ensure best care of orthopaedic and trauma patients.In Bangladesh we have to face a huge burden of trauma patients which is gradually increasing day by day so all orthopaedic centers including NITOR is mainly `engaged in treating mainly trauma patients. Inspite of this NITOR is still delivering services to non traumatic patients as well. Though hospital has no separate departments for orthopaedic subspecialities like spine, hand, sports injury, paediatric orthopaedics, adult reconstruction, arthoplasty etc. We are providing subspeciality services sporadically. Recently separate units are formed to develop subspeclity services in NITOR and units started working under the guidance of unit chief who have special skilled in respective field.
Interested orthopaedic surgeons (Asst prof, Consultants) are engaged in the respective fields and developing their skills in the above mention subspecialties.
In addition, Bangladesh Spine Society, Hand Society (BDSHS), Illizarov Society (ASAMI) are routinely performing scientific seminars in NITOR and other places.
